England's youngsters should start in qualifiers

So, its that time again, September is in its infancy which calls for an international break.

It is an extremely nerve-wrecking time for all managers of top clubs up and down the country, praying that their star players aren't the ones who pick up injuries whilst on duty.

But, even though the chance of injury is constantly at the back of managers minds on these breaks, it is exciting to see their most talented players take to the pitch in their country colours, especially the up and coming youngsters who have been selected as débutantes or barely capped at international level.

It's an extremely important time for these players, as it can make or break their future careers as top players, this is why the international managers should give them every chance available.

Roy Hodgson has selected young prospects including Andros Townsend, Ross Barkley and Raheem Sterling, who have all made a great start to their premier league campaigns. His squad triumphed over Moldova, with Barkley being given his first cap, and they will now face Ukraine this week.

Sterling, Townsend and Barkley are but three of a host of young people to have been selected and I say that he should just send them in at the deep end together.

It's not as if they are talentless, because after all they are the prospects of what England will have to offer in future World Cups and European campaigns, so they might as well be getting used to playing with each other.

I see no use at all in picking England's current veterans for games that we stand a good chance of winning anyway, as it doesn't benefit the future of the national side nearly so much as fielding young starlets does.

Because, when we up against opposition like this we know that we have enough talent anyway to get a result and so why not try something daring, why not put a step forwards in the project of that is the England football team. If it comes off then I believe there will be no end of praise by anyone at all interested in the England camp, from the fans to the players themselves, as long as Roy Hodgson gives the youngsters a go.

So, I suppose the main message to Mr. Hodgson is that you might as well start building soon or we'll never finish it in time, because these guys are the future, like it or not.
